    Yes there are a couple of isolated groups here in NZ. Well looked after
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Seen a few, could probably make a good guess where that one was shot.

    He looks fantastic! I read a bit online that said white Tahr are about 1 in 10,000. Not sure how factual that is but cool to see nonetheless.

    Lilybank have held white Tahr behind the wire for years, if you have deep enough pockets, you too could have your very own white Tahr (unless they have run out, in which case they could sell you another coloured super specimen to help ease the strain on your bulging pockets........)

    Every now and then one would escape, usually on the Godley side of the station. Never a bloody camera when you want one!
